Doggie Day care center to open in Astoria mid July

There will be a new place for dogs to go to while their owners are at work.

Tania Firrigno, the owner of The Jumping Bulldog, a pet shop located at 28-10 23rd Ave, is opening a doggie day care center just down the block from her current location.

The day care center will be located at 26-20 23rd Ave and is expected to open in the middle of July.

Firrigno’s current store does offer doggie day care, although it is more focused on grooming, training and selling dog food. For instance, the store only has room to cater to two dogs.

With the new store, Firrigno will have the capacity to house 20 or more dogs.

Firrigno said that there is a shortage of doggie day care facilities in Astoria.

“The need for a facility like this is growing with the neighborhood. We get a ton of inquiries about daycare services,” she said.

The dogs will have supervised play and nap time.

The service will cost $32 for per day and there will be packages for those who use the service often. Half-day packages will also be offered for those who want to drop their dog off while they do their errands.

“We will be a full service facility and offer packages for those who come frequently or who want their dog groomed before they are picked up,” Firrigno said.
